    Did Joe Heinrichs Retire or ?

    CAP has / had multiple major issues from repeat sexually harassment lawsuits to launches so bad people should have been fired long ago. Another failed launch is really no surprise. I am really surprised it stays open and continued new product sourced there.

    Joe Hinrich's was one of the good guys from people I talk to. I wish Joe was our current CEO.

    BUYOUT...When Do We Leave??

    The days of people hiring in at age 18 , working 30 years and retiring at 48 are over. Actually if someone did retire at 18+30= 48 and retired for 30 years they would be 78'ish and god bless them. Very little has been added to the pension fund for the last +20 years for legacy employees and the union is into lump sums Vs real pension benefits.

    I lost count how many people died at work or that just retired and never got a single retirement check. The house always wins.

    They Were Blind, Now They See....?

    The rank and file membership has decreased. Has the IUAW staffing decreased by the same percentage ?

    BUYOUT...When Do We Leave??

    A lot is not everyone but I would bet anyone a beer its 30% minimum. About a year back some area managers were supposed to be chewed out for people leaving early in their areas. The area managers were gone also. They all got talked to and it lasted a few weeks.

    BUYOUT...When Do We Leave??

    There are a LOT of people at our plant that skate out everyday hours early, including OT days ,skilled , production & management. Why retire when you are drawing +50 hour paychecks and only there ( notice I did not say working) half of that?

    Hourly UAW legal service do not cover criminal legal matters. IUAW must have a better plan.................................

    I guess they are not happy with the 10% friends and family placement agreement where the union can place anyone they want in hourly jobs. Placing people on the international level is really hitting the lottery. " had resisted and opposed labor practices such as the 10% Agreement, in which officials at Ford and officials of the UAW agreed to set aside 10% of all hourly job openings nationwide within Ford for friends and relatives of high-ranking officials within the UAW. " Lawsuit result and 10% agreement~

    GM`s Federal Filing

    "15 million contract to make trinkets for union membership" Makes those $15 grand USAF toilet seats look cheap
  15. Purchased the wife a new 2019 Ecosport AWD on the Black Friday sale. Spunky little car and loaded with some cool features. The only thing I don't like is no spare tire / rim and an inflation kit. I want to get a full size rim and tire ( 16" ). Does anyone know if a Fiesta or any other Ford rim will fit the 2019 Ecosport with 16" factory wheels ? Since the Ecosport is new in the states I doubt there are many wrecked ones or salvage rims to chose from but IF a Fiesta or other rim fits it makes finding one a lot easier.
